Farmhouse Table + Bench


You know that feeling you get when you go to seven different stores to search for that one perfect item that doesn’t exist? I’ve been doing that a lot lately. My first floor bathroom is STILL without a mirror because I can’t find just the right one. Maybe I’m being too picky?  So what?  Shouldn’t we be? Your space should greet you with all the warm feelings and joy to recharge you from your tough and exhausting day. I need my space to be charged with that happy energy. Mediocrity is not an option.

We got rid of our dining room table months ago. It was too large for the space. It didn’t mesh with our creative tastes. And, to be honest, it only collected dust. We had this large area of our home sitting idle. It had no purpose and was a waste of space. Simply looking at the space (you can’t miss it) drained me of that good feeling vibe.

So, we customized and did it ourselves.

I worked on a design and gave Jared a pic of what I was looking for. Wood +Metal, functionality in the space, and durability. I especially wanted a drop leaf. Admittedly, we don’t eat at the table as much as we should. It just doesn’t work well in our lives at the moment. A drop leaf will allow us to push it against the wall to open the space and allow me to use it as a makeshift writing desk.  AND Carraway has plenty of space to play!

Jared, with help from my father, made the design come to life! I could not be happier with the outcome.

Jared built a bench to match.  It fits perfectly underneath the table when not in use.

Want one of your own? We are happy to oblige. Don’t want the drop leaf? That’s okay. We customize! Email us.
